Calling all Chapel Hill and Carrboro community members!
It’s time to carry out the 30 year community tradition of celebrating our graduating seniors and keeping them safe on grad night.  Project Graduation, an in-person celebration for all CHCCS graduating seniors, is ON for June 11, 2022 at UNC-Chapel Hill’s student union.  We need the support of the entire community (parents, grandparents, teachers, administrators, neighbors, local businesses and non-profits) to make it a success.  Here’s what you can do to help:
DONATE: This event is offered at no cost to our seniors.  Our fundraising goal of $70,000 ensures that this event happens this year AND continues for years to come.  Donations are tax deductible and no amount is too big or too small.  When you make a donation, you help ensure that every graduating senior gets to be a part of a celebration.
VOLUNTEER: We need 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students, parents, and staff to serve on a committee and/or to staff the event on June 11, 2022.
SPREAD THE WORD: Forward this email to your neighborhood list serves.  Ask your employer to match your donation or to sponsor the event.  Print a few copies of the attached flier and take them to your local businesses to ask for their support.  Contact our fundraising chair, Tina CoyneSmith (, for more information on sponsorship opportunities.
Thank you for helping to continue this 30 year community tradition!
